    Clock. The painted dial, colorful layers has beautiful crackle. Arrows are bronze, casting. Up to the middle of 19 century in manufacturing of clock in Russia were engaged only highly professional masters in large cities. These clock were intended for palaces and manors and were not accessible to people. And peasants has taken care of itself. So in 1860s there manufacturing of clock with the painted wooden dials, named in people "chodunki" began. The center of clock craft became three villages in district of Zvenigorodsk of the Moscow province: Sharipovo, Jastrebki and Jagunino. For manufacture the local material was used: for cases took wood of a fur-tree, birches, filled weights with pure river sand. In the first quarter of 20 century dials were already made of a tin with printed images. Sharipov's workshops supplied with clock all Russia- half left to Moscow, the rest in other cities, even to Siberia. Not looking at million circulations of release, such a clock are the extremely rare subject of a collecting today as peasants, as a rule, did not repair the deteriorated clock and threw out or burnt in an oven.
